Jomon pottery vessels of Sori site

Cultural Heritage/Japan Heritage
The Sori site, a part of Idojiri, is a Middle Jomon Period (c. 3,500?2,500 BC) site complex. Discoveries include magnificent pottery vessels that are representative of the Middle Jomon Culture that flourished around Mt. Yatsugatake and influenced the pottery of other regions. One of them was exhibited at the exhibition, “Ancient Art of Japan” in Paris in 1953, and its design was incorporated in the printed stamp of the postcard in 1972. Some of the vessels were designated Nagano Prefectural Treasures in 1975 and 2018.
